Mikael
Sandberg
25-year old center Mikael Sandberg (210-C-91) had an amazing evening in the last round for second-ranked TuNMKY and receives a Eurobasket.com 1st Division Player of the Week award for round 21.
He had a double-double of 22 points and 14 rebounds, while his team beat Munkkiniemen (#11, 6-18) 91-76. TuNMKY maintains the 2nd position in their group in Finnish 1st Division. They are still close to the very top. TuNMKY would have been even better if they kept winning the games like in the last round. They have a solid 20-4 record. In the team's last game Sandberg had a remarkable three three-pointers out of 6 attempts. He turned to be TuNMKY's top player in his first season with the team. Mikael Sandberg averages this season 20.5ppg and 9.5rpg.

Second best performed player last round was Alexei Ekimov (210-F/C-81) of JyWe. He is Russian forward in his first season at JyWe. In the last game Ekimov recorded impressive double-double of 17 points and 19 rebounds. Of course he led JyWe to another comfortable win 90-71 over slightly higher-ranked PeU-Basket (#10, 7-17) being unquestionably team leader. The game was between two teams which are definitely not main contenders for the top position in Division B. JyWe keeps 12th position. 18 lost games are too many comparing to just six victories JyWe managed to get this year. Ekimov is a newcomer at JyWe and quickly became one of team's most reliable players.

Third place about best performers goes to forward Riku Laine (197-F-97) of PeU-Basket (#10). Laine got into 30-points club by scoring 33 points in the last round. He went also for nine rebounds . Despite Laine's great performance PeU-Basket lost 86-88 to slightly lower-ranked Munkkiniemen (#11, 6-18). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. PeU-Basket can only dream about fighting for top spots in Division B. They have rather bad season and 7-17 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Laine he does not play for a better team. But maybe if he did, his season stats would not be that high. Laine has a very solid season. In 14 games in Finland he scored 22.9ppg. He also has 8.6rpg and FGP: 53.6%.

Other top performing players last week:
4. Joshua Gouch (196-G-91) of Espoo Basket - 18 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists
5. Pyry Rainamaa (194-G-90) of PuHu Juniorit - 18 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists
6. Lauri Tiainen (193-G-90) of Raholan Pyrkiva - 28 points, 10 rebounds and 2 assists
7. Henri Kantonen (197-G-97) of Korikouvot - 20 points, 14 rebounds and 5 assists
8. Omar Calhoun (198-G-93) of Espoo United - 29 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
9. Demondre Harvey (201-F-93) of Oulun NMKY - 24 points, 12 rebounds and 2 assists
10. Aleksi Kantonen (188-G-95) of JyWe - 24 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists

The Player of the week is chosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)
